    Whats The Point

    This thread is nearly a year old. Please stop digging up ancient history.

    Congratulations, man!

    Yup, that's a Coppermine.

    Monitor Painting Success

    The gloss doesn't do it for me, I think I'd find it annoying. Good job on not killing yourself.

    Seagate Buys Maxtor

    Owned all brands of hard drives and I must say I like the Seagates best. Bettern than WD, better than Samsung, etc. That's just personal preference. I can't say I've had a Maxtor live much more than 2 years, and they're noisy as all heck and run freakishly hot. If this makes me a fanboy, then so be it.
  6. Interesting concept, execution good for a trial run.

    Wondered What That Noise Was

    Ouch! That piston sure took a beating!

    Street Racing And Drifting.

    That's because your logic is flawed. It's not only dangerous to yourself. The problem lies in the possibility of injuring / killing somebody else, who is not necessarily a knowing participant. For that you should give a "."

    Psu Connections

    More often than not 24-pin PSUs have the extra 4 pins either slide off or pop off. If they don't (solid 24-pin connector) then you can either use the adaptor, or if there is enough room around your ATX connector you can just plug it in and the extra 4 pins will hang over the edge. I've done it before.

    They're Here

    LOL I used to have a Power Wagon - a 1952 M37. Slow as all hell, but loads of torque. The PTO winch was a nice touch, too. Not really unlike this guy, but mine had a split front bumper to make room for the Braden winch.

    Cheap People

    Refund the paypal payment and make a second-chance offer to the next lower bidder.

    You're 17, right? You guys need to drop the "I'm invincible" mentality. Hopefully you'll grow out if it soon.

    That Would Do It...

    But the question remains - how the heck would a northbridge spontaneously crack? I think there's more to this story

    Civic Turbo Vs Bmw 325i

    Actually, I drive a Hyundai Santa Fe now. But that's not the point. My opinion on the matter has absolutely nothing to do with what I drive, what you drive, or what anybody drives. By driving like a complete and utter moron (be it faster than what's considered safe by law, not paying attention to what you're doing, or allowing yourself to lose complete control of your vehicle) in a place where other people can unknowingly step into the middle of it is not safe. I don't give a flying F what you or anyone else says. It's just STUPID. Grow up and think of what you're doing. Then again, go ahead and do it. Eventually all people stupid enough to street race (or stweet wace?!) will kill themselves and we won't have to worry about it anymore. It's just unfortunate that they'll likely take other innocent people with them.

    Civic Turbo Vs Bmw 325i

    Street racing is bad, Mm'kay? I had 1 friend nearly die caught in the crossfire of street racers, and another friend of mine still has a bad back from a run-in with street racers 2 years ago. Take it to the track. Or I will hunt you down and beat you with your pissy little POS car so severely that you'll cry for your mama.

    My School District

    Our school was never cancelled unless it was either -45C or lower, or the Windchill was below -50C, or enough snow that the buses couldn't make it. That usually meant 3+ feet overnight.

    Do You Name Your Systems?

    I voted but of course... as names are useful in a network environment. In the room with me I have: Cartman (my machine) Catbert (Wife's) TheSilverServer (the silver-coloured server ) Laptacular (the crap-tacular PII 300 laptop)

    The Good The Bad And The Ugly

    The Good: I keep close attention to detail. The Bad: I keep close attention to detail. The Ugly: I want to kill some of my employees for their lack thereof.
  19. Okay, guys, here's the deal: My wife's system continually gains time. As in an hour a day. Re-installing Windows hasn't done it, CMOS battery didn't do it, and even a motherboard swap didn't do it. WTF is going on?!

    http://www.fishinghurts.com/feat-newcomic.asp Disgusting, eh? They're targeting kids with this garbage because kids are the only rational beings still gullible enough to accept it. Click the image for the full PDF.

    The people that throw red paint on you for wearing a suede jacket are the same people who are targeting our kids through their propaganda. I googled peta comics and found four more gems of literature. If you have a look at "a rat's life" (about animal experimentation) they make medical researchers, universities and large corporations i.e. Procter & Gamble out to be barbaric beasts who take pleasure in the suffering of animals.

    Hey, leave the fish out of this. Ohh, you mean the people at PETA.

    Zalman Cpu Cooler

    I still use Ceramique as well. It works well, and costs a fair bit less than AS5 Back on track, the 9500 does look promising, albeit large.

    Omfg! I'm Screwed!

    I think those of us who are running mirrored arrays set up the mirror in the RAID BIOS instead of in Windows. In that case, Windows just sees one physical drive
